I'm going with the theme for this review. Who sucks, when they sucked and why.

I suppose that it's both a blessing and a curse that the band had nearly 30 years of creative productivity (or is that productive creativity?) There really aren't that many other examples of that kind of longevity - certainly not accompanied by a multi-generational fan base. I saw the stones play in 1981 on what was supposed to be their last tour. They're still at it to this day, but they're still the same band, more or less, playing the same songs, the same way.

What's remarkable to me is that the first documented set list includes an I know You Rider which they also played the day before Jerry died. They played it with Pig, they played it with TC, they played it with the much maligned Donna, with Brent, with Hornsby and Vince. it was never the same, and when they played it, brother, they PLAYED it. That's good enough for me.

Take your abusive, arrogant user name and stick it where the sun don't shine. Donna was Jerry's back up singer for many years in his own side bands and The Grateful Dead. You can hate on Donna all you want, but that will never change the fact that Garcia wanted her on that stage sharing vocal duties year after year after year. If Jerry said go--she would have been gone like that. I guess he should have checked with you first??

Any show from this week in 1979 is worth your time. This one is no exception.

Subject: great
there is no such thing as voodoo especially when the Dead are involved. I had to miss these shows so I went to Nassau instead, wish I had caught these. This is the better of the two nights. Wasn;t this place a roller rink at one point? These were the days. Even up until 1985 the Dead could still play great venues. After summer '86 and Dylan/petty it was all over. Then In the Dark hit and that just screwed everything. I am glad I got to see the Grateful Dead when it was still a good scene because after summer '86 it was gone forever.

This show is definitely over shadowed by the prior evening. However, this is a great show too. Was fortunate enough to attend both nights.

Small venue with open floor and bleachers on the sides. The whole place was rocking both nights.

My first China->Rider.

Thank you Mr. Miller and friends for making this available.

The night before gets most of the accolades, but I think this is the better of the two nights - both great, no doubt, but there is a voodoo to this one I find irresistible. Everything is played with high-octane gorgeousity; I can't find a single weak link in this chain.

Too many highlights to mention specifics. It's all balls-out terrific. Thanks, Mr. Charlie Miller, for bringing this show to us.

Subject: Good show
I like the previous night better but this is a strong show.I have say, about half-way through Mississippi half-step I was regretting my choice of show but by Frankilin's Jerry perked up a bit and the band gelled nicely.Passenger's not usually a tune I love but this version is excellent.

Nice upgrade of a great show. Half-Step Franklin's opener to get you going, a hard rocking Passenger and an excellent China>Rider for this period.

Only warning is that encore was placed at the end of the first set but this is not indicated in the player. Therefore all the tracks are mislabeled after TMNS.
